Coin Story

The multi award-winning Tiffany Art series celebrates its anniversary. In 2014, as the 10th issue, we also present a magnificent Silver-Kilo as an exclusive limited edition of only 99 pieces alongside the traditional 2-ounce piece. Both coins show the famous Zwinger in Dresden. Along with the Frauenkirche, the Zwinger is Dresden‘s best known object of interest. The skilful fusion of architecture, sculptures and paintings, of gardens, fountains and squares make it an impressive work of art as a whole, and elevate it to one of the most significant Baroque developments worldwide. The Zwinger is a representation object of the Saxon Elector Augustus the Strong. The Prince - King of Poland - commissioned his court master builder, Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann (1662-1736) and the sculptor Balthasar Permoser (1651-1732), with the design of a new location as the setting for courtly festivities and as the forecourt for his planned new palace. The two artists designed the Zwinger as an absolutely unique building complex: an almost quadratic courtyard framed by galleries and pavilions, by terraces, balustrades and gates, statues, arches and fountains. The latest Tiffany Art-Edition shows two of the Zwingers’ magnificent buildings: on the one side, the Kronentor with its onion shaped dome and on the other side, the richly adorned Wallpavilion. Both structures are impressive examples of the great theatrics of Baroque. With their vast plasticity and the abundance of figures and ornaments, they are spectacular models for the detailed minting design of the Tiffany Art series!

Reverse Design

The reverse side shows the richly adorned Wallpavilion. The coin features micro engraving in high relief.

Obverse Design

The obverse shows the Kronentor with its onion shaped dome. You will also find the South Sea Island of Palau’s coat of arms – a sea god with a mermaid and a boat typical of Oceania. The name of the issuing nation ‘REPUBLIC OF PALAU’ appears along the top edge and the face value of ‘5 $’ is indicated in the exergue.

Packaging

The Tiffany Art - Baroque Dresden coin comes in a special Tiffany Art case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
